AFCON 2019: Coach Kwesi Appiah Hails Kwabena Owusu's Impact

Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah has hailed Kwabena Owusu's qualities after his impressive output against Cameroon.

Despite drawing Cameroon in the second group game, the 22-year-old's major contribution was hitting the crossbar with a stunning effort which left Appiah absolutely pleased.

"He did well when he came on, he's part of the young guys in the team. Every nation shouldn't depend on few players, we always have to look at the future so that's why these guys are here so we will be looking at giving each the chance when the time is due,” he told the press on Monday.

Appiah also defended Kwadwo Asamoah, who was underwhelming against the Indomitable Lions.

The 59-year-old started Asamoah following criticism for leaving him on the bench in the first match against Benin.

“The good thing about Kwadwo Asamoah is that he plays almost all the positions on the pitch, many feel he didn't have a good game against Cameroon but for me, he helped us a lot tactically with the role he played.”

Owusu is expected to start against Guinea Bissau in Ghana's final group game.
